A family was displaced after a north suburban Wauconda house fire Friday afternoon.

Crews responding to the blaze at 4:35 p.m. in the 28000 block of Wells Drive found a fire on the stove in the kitchen, according to a statement from Wauconda Fire Department.

The residents had left the home 30 minutes before the fire started, fire officials said. No one was injured, and a dog was safely removed by crews.

The home sustained minor fire damage in the kitchen and smoke damage throughout the rest, fire officials said. The Red Cross was contacted to assist the displaced family.
